North Ossetia (Russia) Terrorist Outrages - one year on

Tomorrow sees the start of the siege at a school in Russia which will lead to an horrific denouement, a few days later, in the deaths of several hundred of the children held hostage by terrorists. Russia's recent history has been, and continues to be, rather traumatic but few events of recent years illustrate that trauma better than the events which commenced one year ago tomorrow. (Links to memorial pages to this tragedy and to other recent terrorist outrages are available from the 'Memorial Pages' link in the column at right)
